Bah, there's an illusion I didn't want shattered. :)
Fair enough. Sounds like conquest probably wouldn't be much fun.
Hmm, I've gotten warned off on a number of occasions for that exact behavior by the AI.
So, having gotten my first culture win (Ethiopia, Prince, Standard) by a comparatively narrow margin, I'm thinking it's time to bump things up a bit. Does simply increasing the map size (and thus the...

Memorization isn't really a thing with RtS, especially in light of the fact that the level changes daily. I tend to deliberately take different paths, too, if I'm playing a lot in a single day. It's...

Just a quick note to say that Race the Sun is fantastic. It's a dynamically generated endless runner with a great sense of speed and fluidity of motion, a rewarding progression system, and some...

Sticky: A++, would read again.

Just eked out a culture victory in Civ 5 on prince with Ethiopia. The only real obstacle was Byzantium, Theodora was pumping out some serious culture, but the late tech bonuses pushed things along...

You make an excellent case for this, but man, whenever I'm perusing the civ list for what to play next I always see Sweden's ability and wince at the idea of giving away great people.

Yup, I very deliberately went down the piety track specifically to get that. It's pretty great, I've managed a much more efficient mid-game tourism push than I'd have thought possible. It's 1900 and...

About 60% of the way through a Civ 5 game as Ethiopia, trying for my first culture victory and leaning heavily on faith as a tool and weapon. It's a lot of fun, wildly different than my previous...

Last week nothing, in the US most of them went back almost a month ago.
I'm not sure I understand how faith fits into the overall strategy of the game, still. It's the one piece that I'm still unclear on, really. I look at the piety social track, for example, and can't...

Thanks for the warning, I hate it when they do that.
Thanks sonson, you're a font of useful information and I appreciate the graphics too. I'll probably go back through this again when I get home from work but, for the moment, you mention that culture...

If a friendly mod wanted to pull this stuff out and throw it in a new thread, or into the old Civ 5 thread, I wouldn't object.

Thanks again. Would the Shoshone work similarly to Ethiopia for this?
Also, while I've got you talking Civs, what do you think of Polynesia? They seem positively game-breaking at first glance.

Holy crap, that's a pretty interesting bundle right there. Can anyone comment on the current status of Disciples 3 and Omerta?
It's unfortunate that Pat 4 and Port 3 are missing their expansion...

Only half? Games are 5 for $1 people, get with the program.

That's actually who I just won my diplo victory with. So. Much. Cash.
I can see the argument, every time I've prioritized away from research I've lost. I'd been saving the three you mention...

Finished my third game of Civ 5 with a diplomacy victory, thanks in part to sonson's advice up thread (thanks!). I think I'll probably play (at least) one more game at prince and try for an actual...

Fair enough, it looked somewhat Gauntlet-like which is why it got my attention.
Gunpoint doesn't really look like my kind of thing. Stealth games just stress me out, I never seem to actually enjoy...

Hmm, it's a well-put-together indie bundle, and I don't own any of it, but out of all that only Luftrausers and Hammerwatch are really of any interest to me personally. I can't really see getting the...

You can, but it's not a great idea. Even something as rudimentary as giving pursuit orders and making sure your ships focus their fire will generally give better results than the auto-resolve. If...

Thanks for the advice, that's along the lines of what I was thinking but I didn't have enough experience with the game to know if it was a viable strategy and what the potential pitfalls were.

Yeah, camel archers really do turn out to be kind of ridiculous don't they? I had no idea, when I picked this civ, how good that unit would turn out to be. In general you're clearly playing at a...
